108 of the best college football seniors in the nation packed the lobbies at the Courtyard Marriot in Allen, Texas yesterday. This week will be their hardest interview. Each player has a chance to live out their dreams on an NFL roster. This morning, NFL scouts and agents mingled with the players as they stepped off the weigh-in stage.
Next up is lunch. Thanks to Dickey’s BBQ for supplying the lunch before the first practice. These guys can’t wait to stretch their legs after spending all of Monday travelling and filling out paperwork. Team Texas will take the field at 1:00 and finish up around 3:00. Team Nation follows up from 3:15 to 5:15. Those that purchased early game tickets were eligible for VIP Practice Passes and can watch the players with NFL scouts.
If you didn’t get your ticket in time, don’t worry! Tomorrow (Wednesday), there will be a meet and greet for spectators and players from 5:30-6:30. Come to the Courtyard Marriot lobby and have your favorite players sign posters and Texas vs the Nation memorabilia. Sweatshirts and t-shirts will be available for sale during the meet and greet as well.
If you can’t make the meet and greet on Wednesday, 15 players will be at Boston Pizza Friday night from 5-7 in McKinney. Don’t miss your chance to meet these guys before they get to the big leagues!
